It is a privilege to serve as your Zone 7 Director. As a 20 year Tri-Valley resident and active community member, I serve on the board to ensure the Agency is working for YOU.
I heard your concerns about water rate hikes and rising budgets. As your Director, I've asked the tough questions about Zone 7's finances and voted time and again against double digit water rate increases.
In my time on the Board, including one term as President, I successfully fought for regular finance committee meetings, comprehensive financial documents and reporting, transparency, and a better working relationship with our local water agencies and customers.
Critical post-drought decisions will be made in the next few years regarding future water supply and local storage. The community must be included in these discussions.
I will continue working for a safe and reliable water supply that meets the needs of residents, businesses, and our agricultural customers, strong fiscal oversight, keeping flood control a priority, and increasing transparency and communication with the public.
You can continue to count on me to be accessible, effective, and committed to work on your behalf. It would be an honor to have your vote for re-election.
